Australian Drinking Water Guidelines


Welcome to Coal-Seam-Gas.com where we provide the opportunity for Citizen Journalists to publish their stories from around the globe.

According to the Australian Government website:

The Australian Drinking Water Guidelines is undergoing a rolling revision process that ensures it represents the latest scientific evidence on good quality drinking water.

The 2004 Australian Drinking Water Guidelines (ADWG) was developed by NHMRC in collaboration with the Natural Resource Management Ministerial Council (NRMMC). The ADWG incorporates the Framework for the Management of Drinking Water Quality and provides the Australian community and the water supply industry with guidance on what constitutes good quality drinking water.

The Australian Drinking Water Guidelines were updated with the revision of Chapter 8: Drinking Water Treatment Chemicals, and the associated 34 fact sheets. The complete Guidelines are provided in a newly bookmarked version.

Australian Drinking Water Guidelines (2004) RESCINDED

The 2011 Australian Drinking Water Guidelines (ADWG) was developed by NHMRC in collaboration with the Natural Resource Management Ministerial Council (NRMMC). The ADWG was designed to provide an authoritative reference to the Australian community and the water supply industry on what defines safe, good quality water, how it can be achieved and how it can be assured.

The guidelines were developed after consideration of the best available scientific evidence and provide a framework for good management of drinking water supplies to ensure safety at point of use. They addressed both the health and aesthetic quality aspects of supplying good quality drinking water.

The recent update of the ADWG includes:
additional material on pharmaceuticals and endocrine disruptors in Chapter 6;
a rewrite of the monitoring chapters (9 and 10);
additional micro-organism fact sheets; and
an additional 130 pesticide fact sheets.

The latest draft amendments have been released as the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines (2011)
